Wonderful that but for one review, and even that only two months ago, no-one has seen fit to comment all through the years on this above average telemovie. Inarguably dated now, as evidenced by the cars themselves, the flares, hair-do's and music, SMASH UP ON INTERSTATE 5 is a reasonably faithful reconstruction (disaster-movie style) of the happenings leading up to the true-life pile up not so many years earlier.Better than average script give the cast of well known actors and actresses something to work with. Robert Conrad, still looking the part of Jim West plays the police patrol officer most closely involved in the fifty vehicle collision. Tommy Lee Jones, also a cop, looks like a youthful long haired refugee from WOODSTOCK and Buddy Ebsen is well, Buddy Ebsen, as always!The movie does not attempt to sensationalise the events, merely presenting them as is, albeit with considerable literary license one suspects. The current collision is quite well done for its day, showed in stop-frame at the beginning and in full gory feature at the conclusion. I have this movie in our library and decided to compile this review having watched it this evening, the first time in ten years or so. An absolute time-capsule!Titled COLLISION COURSE in Australia, and few European countries.
After years of disaster movies set on planes, ocean liners and even on trains, we finally got one set on the freeway. Another than that, it is just like the rest of the seemingly unlimited parade of mid-1970's disaster epics. Also, the characters were just like the ones in the others. You had the lonely rich middle age lady who finds love with a trucker, the older couple facing a terminal illness, the young lovers on the run and the vengeful cop looking for his partner's killer. All of these characters should have been place on the plane, train or ship but instead they are all on a collision course on a major California freeway. Also, it was cute interesting that this movie began with the "smash-up" and showed all the happenings leading up to it and showing it again at the end and all the aftermaths. For all its faults, it still was a cute nice film.
I was 7 when this was on TV and was so hyped by the commercials for it. My favourite thing was the time clock in the corner of the screen: 40 mins to smashup, 30 mins to smashup, 20 mins to smashup, etc. Obviously trying to hold folks tuned in. And it worked!! At least for a 7 year old kid. My 10year old brother and I were on the edge of our seats, even tho we were sitting on the floor, our eyes glued to the screen. I was so excited by it waiting for the large smashup and was in heaven when it finally happened! Being children we just wanted to see vehicles smashed, not concerned about anyones welfare. Awesome!
